I took over a hunt (Night of the Wolf) when the previous hunt organisor (MondraDiamond) decided for her own personal reasons, she could not carry on doing.
As a result of her actions and statements, many vendors in NOTW hunt said they wished that hunt to carry on. Since the origianal FP Hunts Organisor (MondraDiamond) deleted all web hunt paths and ejected folk who spoke out against her ending the hunt early, we, as vendors, wanted to keep the hunt going. I created a new group with similar name, and was able through a great helper to retrieve a cached version of old web site. The group name is basically because it needed to be a group with similar name for hunters to find.
The previous hunt was never hijacked, nor in any way taken over. It simply was the fact that vendors did not accept the fact that one person used her frustrations on a whole group of people, who spent many hours building gifts for hunters.
I owe HUGE thanks to many people who helped me in 'sortig out' replacement NOTW hunt stuff, and they have requested to remain private.
Oh, and for the record NO, I am NOT an alt of Mondra :-)
Many kind regards
